Hell-i-culture

———

The practice of rearing snails for food is known as heliciculture.

—————

I am a
snail
In a
man’s
World.

Amorphous
And slimy,

You didn’t
Want my
Love as it

Came
In Front
Of You.

—-

You
Prefer
Taking

Magnified
Glasses to
My trails.

—-

Now…

I am…

A single
…Spiral
…Shell.

—-

My body,

A delicacy
to few,

Retracts
& reveals

As Pest,

Food, or

Vector of
Disease.

—-

Crueler
Men have

Scooped
My Insides
Out to
Eat the
Softest

Parts of me

—Until I laid-

Bare object.

Hollow Husk.

—-

Worse men
perverted

My hardest
Boundaries;

Wearing my
Emptiness
Like a charm
[Alongside
Others]

To make
Themselves
Appear more
Beautiful.
